  • Easily mounts to most tail sections and seats
  • New self-adjusting hooks attach to bag with soft ties connecting to bike
  • Made from top quality Tri-Max ballistic nylon with Fibertech accents
  • Bag maintains shape, has reflective piping and a lined interior
  • Adjustable shoulder/tether strap and heavy-duty zippers
  • Office organizer under lid

Great bag at a good price
Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag.

6500 highway miles with no issues or wear
Chicago to Seattle and Seattle to Phoenix were the bulk of the miles. Works perfect on the rear seat pad of my FJR. Dry with the cover in the rain. Hard rain for 2 days and speed and not a drop. Excellent product and easy to use. With this bag and my paniers I could travel indefinitely with everything I need. I actually have room for more if I want it. Also works as a backrest for me on the FJR.

Nice size.......
bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one.

Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff.

Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps.

Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone.

Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it!

Highly recommended.

GREAT Bag
I really like this tail bag. Its big enough to carry a weekends worth of gear or additional gear for a longer trip with the side bags I have. And it fits a full face helmet when expanded.

Very nice quality product. Great value!
After a few weekend trips without a tail bag, my significant other was growing tired of the backpack under a cargo net on the pillion. With an upcoming week long trip through a few New England states, we looked for something that could carry her for a week. After some research, I narrowed our options down and could not pass up the price for this Nelson Rigg piece. Having owned the mini tank bag from Nelson Rigg, I was familiar with the products but the the quality of the product is top notch. The ability to expand the bag as well as the ability to expand even the rain cover was key. My expectations for most rain covers is a somewhat universal elasticized cover. This cover was designed to fit the bag like a glove even allowing the bottom to expand via zipper.

When the bag is empty, one nice piece is that it holds it's shape well. Not quite as well when expanded but why expand the bag if it's empty? This is a nice feature as trips with an empty floppy bag can become annoying.

I would recommend this bag if you are looking for a weekend/week long trip. It could possibly be used as a commuter bag as well but honestly may be a bit large for that unless you have a significant amount of cargo daily.

good tailbag for the money!
tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking

A little tough to install on an FJR
I am not giving it an excellent rating because I have just started using it. Ask me in a couple years. The install with the provided straps was a no go. I have some reusable zip ties that firmly attached it and are working very well so far. They look ugly, but I haven't cut off the excess yet. Have some photos on the FJR Facebook page.

No Complaints
The bag works as advertised. Putting it on the first time took maybe 5 minutes (on the '02 SV650). If you take it off and leave the straps attached to the bike, it's even faster (although I wouldn't ride with the straps dangling, as they may get caught in the chain/sprocket).

The bag seems quite durable, and is heavier than I had anticipated.

It is a large/tall bag, and is too tall for me (6'0") to swing a leg over when getting on (I can swing a leg over when getting off). I have to step over my seat to get on.

Fantastic inexpensive fit for my KLR650
Have saddle bags and now top case for my KLR.
Much less expensive than other options. Not as waterproof -not that anything is. Not as durable. But, 1/3rd cost!
Love the look. Easy on. Easy off.
Much safer than hard-bags. K

Fits on my Buell, which is my everyday shopper. I can fit a gallon of milk and 2 boxes of cereal without expanding it. Fits all the stuff I need. Mounts easy enough and stays put.

Tired of using a back pack, it gets uncomfortable as you put more stuff in it. A cargo net is okay for some things but not for a grocery stop on the way home from work.

I borrowed this tail bag from a friend for a four day ride. It worked so well that I ordered one for myself.
The attachments are better on this updated model than the original ones. Easy on and off with soft ties
to the bike and clips to the rings on the bag.

Looking for a tail bag for a cb500x. Weekend road trips (2, 3 days ). Is this a good one n will fit nice? Any other sugestion? Cheers from Santa Barbara!
RafaelCPA on Aug 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This bag can fit so much gear. I can fit my helmet plus gear, or my riding jacket (with armor) in it plus gear. It expands to fit even more and the side pockets expand also. Plenty of room for a trip. It comes with a waterproof outer shell that works great. I use this and a Nelson Rigg tank bag and can turn my naked FZ6 into a virtual touring machine. Its easy to get on and off, but built to stay on (you would have to renegotiate the straps each time you take it on/off). The rear strap has nothing to hook to on my bike since it has the fender eliminator and an exhaust that shoots under the seat. I just ran one strap through the rear bars and tightened it down. Has been in place with no prob for a few months.
Don't see that there is a rain cover of any sort in the description. Does it come with one? If not is one available as an extra purchase through Revzilla? Thank you
A shopper on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rain cover is included. This is a gret bag. I have used it for the last year. Multiple trips. The ties are great as well as the total build.
Is there quick connect buckles on this bag so I can get on and off w/o removing my seat?
A shopper on May 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure I understand the question... but there is no quick and easy way to remove the bag really. It straps to some point on the frame of the bike, but I found the straps that come with it difficult to use (and not easy to quickly remove). I replaced them with some bungee cords and using that, I can install or remove the bag in about 10 seconds. Other than the straps, I really love the bag! It holds a ton, has the flaps on the sides to protect the paint on the bike from scratches from the straps, and has held up well so far.
How will this bag fit on a BMW 1200RT? Better on the bag seat or rack? Any advice from anyone who is using this on an RT is appreciated? Mike
A shopper on Oct 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have an RT and I mount it on the passenger seat close enough to the rear of the driver's seat that it can be used as a makeshift back rest. I loop the rear strap under the luggage rack and connect to each side of the rear of the bag, The front two straps loop around the frame just to the rear of the passenger foot pegs. It's quick to attach and detach. I have to take the hard bags off to attach the straps. Great bag and it holds a lot of stuff when expanded. You could attach in
the same manner on the luggage rack also. Bill
Does anyone know if the AFX-39 helmet will fit?
Brian S on Mar 28, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will handlle any full face helmet with room to spare without unzipping the 3" vertical expansion. Great design and price. Holds a lot of stuff for long trips when expanded. Love mine!! Revzilla also first class. Bill N
is there anyway I can fit this on top of my tour pack safely?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hard to say without seeing your set up. I had to build a mounting platform out of an old lunch tray to get it to fit my bike properly, but once it was on it performed beautifully. Just got back from a 4,000 mile ride and it went flawlessly. My view is that it's always possible, you just have to find a way to do it right/safely. One word of caution though, this is a very large bag, which I love about it, but stacked on top of a hard shell tour pack it's going to be sticking up like a totem pole on the back of your bike...good luck.
One review says this is not an easy fit on an FJR - but a couple of others praise it. Just wondering if anyone can share details on easiest/best approach to making this work? Considering the purchase but want to make sure it's well suited for my bike.
Theodore H on May 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have attached the Nelson tail bag to my rear seat. It has been on there all most one year and I love it. It stays put easy to access under the seat and plenty of storage. I don't leave home without it.
2014 FJR 1300A.
will this mount on my 2014 star raider s ? and with out scuffing the paint
A shopper on May 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it won´t damage your paint, the flaps on both sides are great protecting the painted body parts, in addition the srtaps are not as aggresive as other retention systems.
